Karoo or Spotted Prinia

Prinia maculosa

Southern Africa has 4 species of Prinia, with the Karoo Prinia being an endemic species occupying fynbos, thickets and taller Karoo scrub.

The bird is easy to find in the right habitat. We had a few pairs close by to my parent’s old house in Llandudno where many of my first photographs were taken.
